FROM JULIE 


Welcome to 2018! 

We hope you had a great holiday and are excited for what is going to be an exciting year of singing with Birralee! 

Rehearsals are about to begin, so please make sure, if you haven't already, that you enrol now, here.

There are still places available in our choirs, particularly in our younger ensembles, so if our choristers have any friends or siblings who would like to join them this year, feel free to forward them this email. 

We're preparing for a number of events this year, including for three tours as part of our commitment to the Department of Veterans' Affairs, along with our annual concert being held earlier than usual, on 2 September at QPAC. We'll be announcing more about this in February's Birralee Billboard. 


Please note, the Birralee Blokes begin rehearsals this Thursday 1 February, with our other ensembles beginning next week. All rehearsals are at the same times and venues as last year - we've noted these below as a reminder. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
